The Viewfinder assembly for the Pye mk5 camera

This is the viewfinder assembly for the Pye Mk5 camera. it is a 7 inch CRT made by Mullard. The scan coils are inside the middle housing and the two counter rotating toothed plaxolin rings move magnets to centre the picture.
The small "rods" at odd angles are magnets to correct for geometry distortions.


The camera in my collection is missing this viewfinder assembly and if you happen to have a spare I would be pleased to hear from you.

This picture was supplied by Clive Woodward who has restored a camera in Australia.
